Patent Docs

Post by Claireinblack »

Does anyone have a pair of patent leather docs ??

Seen a pair today for under twenty quid brand new, but just wonder how they wear, and do they soften or not ??

Thanks

My brother has a pair of red ones. He's had them for at least 15years. Appart from the tread slightly worn they look like new.

20 quid new? Bargain. I've just splashed out 50 on a pair of calf length zip up docs in the sale(to complement my more traditional 10 eyelet pair..). Last big buy for a while.
Boogie now, Dave!

Just don't wear them down the front at any gigs :wink:

Too right. I still have some some very strange stains on mine from SBE. (or are you talking about crushing toes??)

As you may remember Claire, my daughter was wearing her beloved bright pink patent ones at Reading. They are softer than normal ones to start off with but they are really prone to scuffing if your not careful with them. She forked out about 60 quid for 'em I think, from somewhere in Camden.

I do remember RavenLuny, and they looked stunning.
But for £20, think i'm going for it !
Thanks for the advice

Hi claire i used to make shoes (balroom dancing ones) and a lot of them where from patent leather i would say they do take longer to soften but a hairdryer does a good job of it and it also takes the creases out of the leather
